Culinary Tourism in Ireland - An Assessment of its evolution and current state

supporting circumstance was the industrial revolution in Great Britain between 1750 and 1850. As a result, the Irish light railway system was extended and canals were built, providing the first transport network. Moreover, the first hotel chain was established. Travel agents started to emerge. Amongst them, Thomas Cook, bringing thousands of visitors to Ireland by train. The travel industry kept progressing. In 1894, the first conference of the just established Hotel and Restaurant Proprietors’ Association took place. In 1895, the year referred to as the Tourist Year, the Irish Tourist Association was formed. (Furlong, 2008) In 1923, the Irish Tourism industry had been destroyed by the Great War. The former well-developed transport infrastructure was damaged by blown up roads, bridges and significantly destructed railway network. The industry as well as its players were crushed, lacking confidence and financial capabilities. However, some individuals still envisioned the industry’s regeneration and they were partly supported by the government. The Tourist Organisation Society had merged with the West of Ireland Tourism Development Association in 1924. In June of the same year, the Irish Tourist Association was registered, having the Munster Tourism Development Association subsuming into it the following month. One year later, the new Irish Tourist Association was incorporated on 28 July 1926, being responsible for the country’s publicity. (Furlong, 2008) The same year, the ITA could successfully require major funds for the improvement of tourist roads. Moreover, offices were opened in New York, Chicago and San Francisco during 1933. An immense change is being described by Furlong (2008) as “[…] the

Effective Recruitment Challenges Faced by the Hospitality Industry in Bangladesh: A Study on Selected Star Rated Residential Hotels

Effective Recruitment Challenges Faced by the Hospitality Industry in Bangladesh: A Study on Selected Star Rated Residential Hotels

Recruitment is a process of developing a pool of qualified applicants who are interested in working for the organization and from which the organization might reasonably select the best individual or individuals to hire for employment (DeNisi & Griffin, 2001). Therefore, it is an important prerequisite to finding and hiring potential employees to run the business successfully. Recruitment is the process of finding and attracting capable applicants for employment (Aswathappa, 2005). However, according to the international Tourism Labor Market Conference 1995, tourism and hospitality industry is facing acute shortage of skilled work force, the current state of the workforce is mostly unskilled, uneducated, unmotivated, and unproductive, and these are due to unattractive salaries and longtime working hours (Srivastava, 2008). However, in a recent survey, executives rated “finding the talent to meet our hiring needs” as their greatest business challenge (Cascio, 2003). Recruitment functions are to take the endeavor for finding the talented human resources (HR) by searching at the sources of recruitment (shown in appendix, Table number 6) in the labor market and stimulate them to generate interest to apply for job. So, it is equally challenging for all the functional HR managers of hospitality sector to identify the effective sources of potential supply of human resources with optimal cost. In addition, it is quite tough to formulate creative ways to attract the potential workforce in order to meet the present and future demand of human resources by complying with the key performance indicator of recuritment functions (shown in apedix, Table number 8). 6.

Cooperation between Russia and the EU in the field of innovative development of tourism: the case of the Lithuania — Poland — Russia cross-border cooperation programme

Cooperation between Russia and the EU in the field of innovative development of tourism: the case of the Lithuania — Poland — Russia cross-border cooperation programme

Most resorts in the Baltic region face the problem of seasonality. In this connection, the most competitive destination is the one that can attract tour- ists throughout the year, which requires innovations. The most effective means are capital intensive as they involve the development of an all-year- round infrastructure (e. g. balnearies, congress halls, exhibition halls, musical theatres, theme parks, etc.). At the same time, the introduction of new tech- nologies — for example, changing museum exhibits or creating new exhibi- tion halls — has a beneficial effect on demand for this type of recreation, which increases attendance rates of museums and makes tourist centres more attractive for visitors.

Contributions of Tourism to the Development of Regions in Russia and Germany. Bashkortostan and Saxony

Contributions of Tourism to the Development of Regions in Russia and Germany. Bashkortostan and Saxony

How to stimulate and develop sustainable tourism in Bashkortostan under these framework conditions? What are the consequences of the low density of population and the “historic rucksack”? What can we learn from Saxony in this context? First, not all of the current touristic services have a suficient potential for development. In view of sustainability, it is necessary to concentrate hu- man and inancial resources — perhaps on those three types of tourism, for which conditions are favorable for natural and/or historic reasons: al- pine/winter tourism, health tourism, and adven- ture tourism. Unfortunately, due to the lack of sta- tistical data, it is hardly possible to analyze care- fully the current demand for tourist services in Bashkortostan. According to the opinion of ex- perts in the sphere of inbound tourism, tourists come mainly from Bashkortostan, neighboring re- gions and the Moscow region. “Effective” demand depends on the availability of sanatoriums, ski re- sorts and tour itineraries. However, thus providing not much information on the “true” preferences of the tourists. There is also no data on the de- mand of foreign tourists. The main purpose of the tourism industry currently seems to be to attract as many tourists as possible to the country, and to create all possible conditions to make them spend as much money as possible inside the country. These are not necessarily good framework condi- tions for sustainable tourism (discuss the current deiciencies of the tourist business, including in- suficient data, in Russia in more detail) [2, p.25f].

The development and internationalization of rural tourism in inland north centre of Alentejo region: focusing on the Brazilian tourists

Regarding the INCA region, taking into account the data on “Accommodation in Tourism establishments in TRA and MHT of residents in Brazil, by month, district and municipalities, for the period 2013/2014” (INE - Statistcs Portugal ), Évora county hosted 219 guests in 2013, receiving more Brazilians in April, September and then in October (by descending order). From the places mentioned the municipalities of Reguengos de Monsarraz (105 guests) and Évora (46 guests) have represented a total of 151 guests (this is 68,9% of all guests hosted in the Évora district). In 2014, 240 Brazilian guests were hosted with higher incidence in May, November and then April (also by descending order). Among all municipalities (again by descending order) Reguengos de Monsarraz (134 guests), Évora (50 guests), Montemor-o-Novo (22 guests), Portel (8 guests) and Mourão (4 guests) have received Brazilian tourists. The county of Portalegre, registered in 2013 a total of 115 Brazilian guests, especially in May, July and October (by descending order). According to INE - the Statistics Portugal 2013-2014, Marvão (with 84 guests from Brazil) and Portalegre (11 guests) summed a total of 95 Brazilians tourists, representing the vast majority of Brazilians hosted in the district. In 2014 there were 226 Brazilian guests hosted in this district mainly in May, April and October (by descending order). One may thus conclude that this market prefers to travel in spring and autumn to Alentejo. In all cases their stay lasted on average, less than 2 days, confirming what was reported on the Brazilian market as travelling around in the country to discover it, staying for relatively little time in each place.
